bash 5.0 ships with very old autoconf macros

The bash 5.0 release still ships with very old autoconf macros to
detect gettext.  In aclocal.m4, the copy of gettext.m4 and the
supporting lib-link.m4 are from gettext-0.12 dating from 2003.

In particular, the included version of AC_LIB_LINKFLAGS_BODY cannot
detect shared libraries on OpenBSD.  (It checks for *.so; OpenBSD
only has fully numbered libraries: *.so.0.0, etc.)

These macros should be updated to newer versions from a recent
release of gettext.
